Tip of The Week: Thyroid Chakra™️ Essence for Balancing Throat and Heart?
Mercury is still Retrograde and being in the shadow of eclipse season… its a great time to feature yet another fabulous Essence benefiting communication!
The Thyroid Chakra exists within the Throat and bridges the energy centers of the Heart, Anahata and Throat, Vishuddha, Chakras. Keeping it cleansed and balanced can help improve your energetic equilibrium and vitality, strengthen your willpower, enhance creative self expression, and in some cases help balance issues related to breath, emotional eating (ie issues of weight), and in general anything associated with stress!
Your self expression defines who you are and is essential to your greater health and wellbeing. This is true even when (and if) SILENCE is your means to communicate. That is to say, having a voice is NOT necessarily about “having a voice”. I’m reminded of this by the empowered communication I see from friends and clients who are deaf, yet many of them express themselves with far greater poise, intuition and strength than many, even those in power or with loud booming voices.
In a society that is so divided and where words can get you in trouble, it’s easy to learn to “hold your tongue”. While this may help keep the “greater peace”, if it causes you inner turmoil, it can accumulate over time and lead to energetic blockages, including those associated with physical imbalance, mental and/or creative blocks, loss of willpower, emotional blocks, or issues with breath, weight, and so much more.
Tip: For helping balance and align the thyroid chakra regarding issues of energetic stress, we recommend you spray Shanti Kai™️ Thyroid Chakra™️ Essence directly on the throat, front and back, over chest area, especially heart, upper heart, mid back, and other key sensitive areas (ie forehead/3rd eye, temples, spine) 2x a day, or as needed or desired.
You may also try pairing it with any of our Essences for Communication highlighted in our latest blog, to promote the clearing and healing of issues concerning self expression.
We also suggest you checkout our Naturopathic blog on diet, part of our upcoming Resource Guide by Shanti Kai™️[vc_single_image image=”28446″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_border”]In addition to Thyroid Chakra™ Essence, we are also recommending the following (on sale now through July 15).
Throat Chakra or Vishuddha™ Blend Essence: It doesn’t matter who you are, if you can’t express yourself, to many, you simply don’t exist. While we know that’s not true, the world around you can be hard enough without blocks to expression moving in and causing you to fumble in your ability to express yourself. Vishuddha™ Essence helps clear blocks to the Throat Chakra, so that you can speak your truth and express yourself optimally.
Lantana Master Essence is for encouraging harmony and cooperation, and helping you assimilate and integrate multiple energies at once. It also helps you manage overwhelm and can improve group dynamics.
Kalanchoe Master Essence can help you integrate various streams of information, helping you process subconscious blocks that affect your ability to communicate and integrate harmoniously within yourself and with others. It may help with sleep issues, dream work and interpretation. If you are dealing with communication barriers, Kalanchoe can help bring out the underlying blocks so that you can move toward resolution.
Pentas Master Essence promotes the clearing of blockages between your throat and heart chakras, opening communication lines for truth to come out. It helps you to let go of past pain and the need to protect yourself, and it helps you with public speaking, or with teaching, and encourages group harmony and cooperation.
Smithsonite Master Essence helps bring harmony to relationships. It can promote balance and reconciliation, promote problem solving ability, and enhance your leadership skills. It has been know for energetically helping in fostering clear self-expression, left-right brain balance, and overcoming gender, language and other communication barriers.
Dahlia Master™ Flower Essence may help strengthen your ability to handle intense emotional stress. It may help to increase faith and confidence, thereby allowing you to step into a space of optimism despite difficult circumstances (i.e. stressful jobs, relationships, family, etc). It can also help those who tend to be overly logical to tap into and harmonize with their emotions, bringing about balance. Similar to how it can help you empathically harmonize in your romantic partnerships, enabling you to better feel and support each other, it can also help you to apply the same sensors to your work/home life, and other relationships.
Hemimorphite Master™️ Essence may be good if you’re holding onto anger or resentment, helping you to forgive and move on. It increases empathy, making it very healing and helpful for harmonizing relationships, bringing mental and emotional transformation to both (or all) parties. Taken regularly, it may also help balance the throat and third eye chakras, benefitting communication and intuition.
Violet White™ and any of the Orchid Essences: These blends help to connect the upper chakras with the third eye and the crown chakra, and spraying third eye with these helps to further facilitate this connection.
On Sunday, April 29th, a full moon in Scorpio, this year’s Pink Moon, will light the sky. While the color pink brings to mind gentleness and peace, Scorpio and its ruler Pluto are anything but, making it a great time to pull out our Intuition™ and Transformation Essences™.
Pluto, The Destroyer, represents transformation, death, re-birth and everything hiding below the surface in your subconscious that you’d rather not look at. Sounds like scary stuff! Fortunately, we have our Transformation™ Essence, formulated specially to balance these types of Plutonian energies. While transformation and everything that comes with it can make us feel heavy and at times hopeless, Transformation™ Essence can help to soften this process, and kindle a desire and ability to transform, and delve into the heart of whatever issues are coming up.
To help with the lunar side of things, Intuition™ Essence is specially formulated to help you work with the energy of the moon and its phases. Full moons in general are a time of culmination, heightened emotions, and of the illumination of things previously hidden. All this adds to the theme of transformation in the air, and Intuition™ Essence can further help to bring ease and acceptance to whatever comes up. Read more about this Scorpio Full Moon Duo.
Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Gemini kicks off a powerful month, astrologically bringing in shifts and new energy for the upcoming year. This full moon is a Super Moon, making it especially powerful, not to mention that Gemini’s ruler Mercury enters its 4th and final retrograde of the year tomorrow as well!
Even though tomorrow’s Super Moon is an extremely powerful full moon, those working with lunar energies may notice the energy is a little held back – so you may feel a burst of energy towards progress followed by a wave of doubt that leaves you feeling one step forward and two steps back. During the Super Moon, the moon comes much closer to the Earth (than during the other full moons), thus its influence on us is greater. The moon is tied to hidden emotions and intentions, and with the influence of both the Super Moon and Mercury Retrograde, what may be illumined is the underlying truth (or even secrets) in our communications and interactions with others.
Our Recommended Essences
While we are not astrologers here at Shanti Kai™, we take note because our Astro Essence Line can be an amazing tool to navigate these times. This month we are recommending working with Intuition™ (our Moon Blend), MercurEase™, and Svadhisthana™ (our Sacral Chakra Blend).
Intuition™ is our Lunar Essence, full of rich deep crystals and powerful flowers that unearth and bring out deep hidden energies, strengthening ones sixth sense, balancing female hormonal cycles, and aligning one more closely to the moon’s natural cycles.
MercurEase™ is for balancing and countering the effects of Mercury Retrograde. It’s Blend can help to strengthen communication skills and help one tap into the creative force working.
Sacral Chakra Essence Blend is a great Essence to use for balancing the 2nd (or Sacral) Chakra. The Sacral Chakra is also our relationship Chakra, and when using this Blend one may find help with the need to be in control and ego states, as well as balancing emotions. One may also experience increased passion and joy levels.
“I used to struggle with pms and see my monthly cycle as a negative – something that set me back. I started working with the Intuition Moon Blend from Shanti Kai and started shifting into more of a harmonious flow with it (no pun intended). I read on Shanti Kai website how certain Native American Indian tribes valued a woman’s monthly cycle as the time when the veil between worlds is the thinnest and women are most in tune with the spiritual realms. I noticed when I started working with the Intuition not only physically did my body start shifting and seeming to align naturally with the moon but I also did the moon release rituals (from their blog) every full and new moon with Intuition and Transformation and noticed my awareness and sixth sense was deepening and instead of feeling overly emotional and discombobulated on my period I now feel more peaceful and at ease- more in tune with myself and others around me. I now notice instead of feeling irritated by people during this time I now feel more kinship or compassion because my empathy increased as I became more sensitive during this time.“
– Lisa B., Wedding Coordinator, Chicago IL
“I use [MercurEase™] anytime I am in a situation where I need to express myself clearly. It is incredibly helpful for me as a musician and songwriter to feel like I am grounded and clear enough to express myself fully without other energies getting in the way of my fullest expression. Often, as artists, we are very aware and very sensitive. Being that sensitive, we are often forced to filter though a lot of garbage to get to the source. Not everything that is positive always makes it way through to us due to stress, imbalances, and environmental reasons. This helps to clear that stuff out. It’s also really helpful as a performer to ease some of those very nature jitters we get before a show, helping you to feel more clear onstage.”
– Rocco, Musician
“Sacral Chakra Essence is another blend I put my whole family on to sync up and strengthen our emotions and needs. With it, I find that we can be more in our power to have boundaries with each other (and others). This is perfect for the stressful holiday time when many people are coming in and out of your house, expecting hospitality and smiling faces.”
– Sarah, Massage Therapist
Sunday brings us the first of two Leo New Moons – the energy of which will be encouraging us to live a little, lighten up and relax, but also to take responsibility for our actions and accept the consequences of our choices. And as usual with lunar events we are recommending our Intuition Essence™ Blend to better connect with the cycles of nature and channel the uplifting energies available during these phases. It may also help balance some of the deep emotions that may come with any moon phase, especially with some eclipses looming.
Intuition Essence™ includes Night Blooming Cactus – the flower of which syncs with the moon and opens up like a crown at night, and acts on both our crown and heart chakras. It promotes optimism and synchronicity, opening us up to divinity and reminding us to appreciate what good we already have.
Intuition Essence™ also contains our Silver Essence, which works in the blend to promote calmness and mental clarity, as well as balancing Kundalini energy. Since new moon in Leo is encouraging us to live a little but also to take responsibility for our actions, this aspect of the essence may be especially beneficial for helping one think clearly and use good judgement – and to maintain a calm cool mental space, especially when our emotions are surfacing.
Covellite Essence is another important ingredient in this blend; it’s especially beneficial for helping to open up one’s sixth sense, clear energetic blockages in the third eye, and help tune one in to their emotional and higher selves.
This New Moon is a great opportunity to reset your intention and focus on creating something new. It may have been emotional/moody roller coaster this last month (or two) but now it’s time to reset the energy and get off to a better start. And if things are already going your way then this is a great time to hone in on more specific aspects of your goals. Intuition Essence™ helps one harness the energy of the New Moon to heighten one’s intuition and sixth sense as well as connect better to one’s higher-self. With better access to one’s innate emotional intuition, it’s easier to get messages and guidance directly from one’s own spiritual connection that may help with healing, growth, and manifesting your goals. Read more about Intuition.
And for those who really want to take special advantage of the new moon’s energy, we recommend our Shanti Kai™ New Moon Meditation – which uses our Intuition and Transformation blends. ?
Start by spraying your feet and lower chakras with the Transformation Blend for grounding and preparing you for your new moon ritual.
Spray Intuition Blend around your 3rd eye and crown so you can better tap into the new moon’s energy and open you up for a deeper meditation.
At this point you should start setting your intention. What is it you want to clear out or release from your energy (tension/pain, bad habit, grief). Or is there something you want to draw in (a job, relationship, etc.)? Set this intention now and prepare to meditate.
Once your intention is fully in your mind use Transformation Blend by spraying it on in the areas you feel resistance to really help clear what has been in the way and counter any resistance.
Bring your intention to your mind and really start to see it happening, if you’re releasing something see it leaving your body. And if you’re trying to draw something in, allow yourself to really see you having what you want (see yourself at work or with a significant other).
If you are having trouble envisioning this you may repeat spraying with Intuition (you may also use Imagine here if you have it). If you are encountering resistance with releasing stuck energy, repeat Transformation as needed (you may also use Removing Obstacles here if you have it).
Once you have fully resonated with your goals and completed your meditation you can begin to come back.
At this point you can use the Transformation Blend for helping to transmute lower energies to a higher vibration in your energy field. – if your goals are very specific you may also anchor this experience as follows:
If it’s a money issue or issue about a job (or education), you could use Prosperity and continue to work with it
If you feel stuck or trouble with motivation, you can use Mars.
We recommend you continue with the Moon Ritual every New Moon and Full Moon until the situation changes. You may still use Intuition and Transformation Daily one after the other – preferably morning and night – to anchor your intention and reconnect with your goal
If you are using Venus, Mars, Prosperity etc, we recommend continuing with these over a period of time for better results whenever the issue comes up. Start with 3-5 sprays 2x/day or as needed or desired, especially over spine and back side of body, crown, bottoms of feet, and aura.
